I don't have time to go over in detail what you posted, but one thing 
that springs to mind is the newer xorg integrates more with dbus and 
hald by default.  If that's not working I would make sure dbus and hald 
are installed with current releases, enabled in /etc/rc.conf and then 
reboot and ensure both are running prior to trying to start X again.
